Welcome to my sailing orientated website

Remember –
Beating is sailing for twice the distance at half the speed with three times the discomfort.
Gentlemen sail downwind.

    Hi,

    Nice website!
    Planning a sailing week with friends in a bareboat charter along the Jurassic coast this may, I was looking for local sailor’s info on the capes and races and found your website.
    We do this area for the first time (we sail our own boats in Belgium and the Netherlands) and our former sailing weeks together were Brittany and the Channel Islands most of the time. Keep up the good work and thanks for the useful info !

    Best regards,
    Jean

      Jean, thanks for your comments.
      If the wind is NOT from the South, spend a night at anchor in Lulworth cove.

    Monty,

    Excellent site, full of great informatio, however far south of Portland bill would you pass during Neap tides.

    Many thanks

      PB is more wind dependant than lunar.
      Inner passage – upto a 4 if into wind, 5 if a big boat, up that all by one if going with the wind. Stay spitting distance in.
      Outside the race, 5 to 6 miles off then PB has no real effect.
      Thanks for your comment, Monty
